Location: Waibau, Waibau, Central, 0000, Fiji

Hours & Compensation:  30 hours/week. Unpaid

Application Deadline: Not listed.


Internship Description:

We are a Charitable Trust set up by indigenous Fijians on village land. We are a permaculture demonstration and training site. We expect to start a permaculture design intern program Aug/ Sept 2014 under our manager a trained and experienced permaculturist. For every international place offered we will offer a free place to a local person

The project takes a holistic approach to eliminate poor health, poverty and poor opportunities in rural areas of Fiji where most people are subsistence farmers. These problems lead to young people at best drifting to cities / moving abroad or staying and abusing kava/ marijuana/ home brew. Hence the degeneration of rural communities. Life expectancy is 65 years and 70% die of NCDS.. We demonstrate how rural life can be improved through sustainable farming, building and energy production without incurring high costs. We live in harmony with the environment walking the talk of sustainable life. Our model is empowering, showing people what can be achieved rather than imposing solutions the project aims to effect lasting change by giving communities the tools to assess their needs and make changes they see as important. It links communities with information available from other permaculture sites and on the Internet from projects around the world who are effecting change and helps try out various models used to see their reliance in the Fiji environment. The emphasis is practical – learning by doing research by trying things out
